Janet Ågren was born on April 6, 1949 in Lanskrona, Skåne län, Sweden. Janet once described Lanskrona to Italian entertainment journalists as a "Northern Naples." Her modeling career brought her to Rome where she studied acting at the Drama School directed by Alessandro Fersen. She made her film debut in Luciano Salce's “Colpo di stato” (1968). She appeared in a total of 57 films, including her only Euro-western “They Call Me Providence” (1972) starring Tomas Milian and directed by Giulio Petroni followed by such memorable films as Lucio Fulci's Paura “Nella città dei morti viventi” (1980), Umberto Lenzi's “Mangiati Vivi” (1980), Carlo Vanzina's “Dagger Eyes” (1983), Richard Fleischer's “Red Sonja” (1985) and Sergio Martino's “Hands Of Steel” (1986). Janet also appeared in 1972 Jack Lemmon comedy “Avanti!” as a nurse. In the early 1980s she also had a brief musical career. She quit acting in the early 1990s and moved to the U.S.A. where she currently resides in Miami, Florida.
